  • yes and no. Most were guys my age that when they were 19 were dating 16 yr old girls and had been for a couple years. The parents finally had a way to get them away from their DD even though the DD's wanted the guys.

  • At first glance I did, however the one I used i think it is called watchdog.com have different colored dots for different types of offenses. Not everyone on there is a child predator, after reviewing the chart more in depth, I feel very comfortable where I am.

  • Yes :) They even have a link from a page for my town..makes it easier for me when browsing.

    No :) My FIL is a police offcicer and has been for over 20 yrs. So, I know I am ok and he knows basically everyone around. And, we live out in the boonies.

  • I check it from time to time, but we've never considered moving. The truth is that it would be very difficult to find a place to live where there were none, and even if you did, there could be some living there by the time you got moved in. I just like to know where they are.

  • Yes I actually did this recently and found out that we have a couple living down the street from us, so I printed their picture and posted them at our little local store so that everyone could know. The reason I did this is because these people had quite a few charges involving young children and we have alot of kids that like to walk and play outside. I think that those sites are a great thing for our communities to have, they are very helpful.!
